    Since updating to OS X Yosemite, I have the following issues with finder...

    Issue 1: Most icons/previews are missing. This only happens in list-view and column-view (where the icons are displayed very small).

    Issue 2: Finder sidebar cuts the icons off. This only appears when using "Sidebar icon size: Medium".

    What I have done already:
    - I just updated to the Beta 2 released today, it hasn't helped
    - Verified and repaired disk
    - Verified and repaired disk permissions
    - multiple restarts

    Does anyone have the same issue? I suppose it has to do with some kind of icon cache...

    I'm running DP1 on three machines, none of them were fresh installs

    -rMBP 13" early 2013 & late 2011 MacMini don't have this issue (they do have others), but my late 2011 MBP 15' does have this missing icons issue....tried all that same stuff too and was hoping for a fix on DP2, still hope I get lucky when I get home...otherwise I'll just deal with it until the GM and do a fresh install then.

    I had this. Fixed it by cleaning system caches with the beta version of CleanMyMac2. An attempt to verify the dynamic shared loader cache threw a strange error which had something to do with icons.

    (I have rolled back to Mavericks after my Magic Mouse (Mice) started lagging on DP2. Problem is fixed in Mavericks, so I think that the Bluetooth drivers have been fiddled with in DP2 - maybe to support Continuity.)

    MacPaw sucks

    Tried this to see if .jpg and .mp4 icon previews would be restored.

    I have to say that MacPaw kind of sucks in that the app seems free for basic cleanup but stops part way through the system cleanup and asks you to buy the full version. Scammer style for sure.

    Anyway I did the manual cache cleanup but no luck.
